Google today announced that the new version of Google Search Console will be available to everyone in the coming weeks. In particular, verified users in the Google Search Console can access new reports on search performance, index coverage, AMP status, and job postings.
According to Google, the new Search Console reports “provide more transparency in Google indexing, bidirectional communication with status between Google and site owners to solve problems faster, and a responsive user interface.”
Search Engine Land was the first to discover the Beta features of Search Console in July. Google then announced more details about this beta release. With this release, the search performance report will have an extra year of data that has long been a priority for the industry.
Both versions of Search Console continue to work for all users and can be used side by side. Google added that it would continue to add traditional Search Console functionality to the new Search Console. Until this process is completed, webmasters can access both versions through a link in the navigation bar.
It’s also important to note that the new Search Console allows you to share critical issues that occur in most relationships with multiple members of an organization to more efficiently distribute information and resolve issues more effectively. Retracting access is also simple and intuitive. More on that below.
